Willy’s MB Jeep (2399) History:
The Willys MB and the Ford GPW, both formally called the U.S. Army Truck, 1⁄4-ton, 4×4, Command Reconnaissance, commonly known as Jeep or jeep, and sometimes referred to as G503, were highly successful off-road capable, light, military utility vehicles, built in large numbers to a standardized design, from 1941 to 1945, for the Allied forces in World War II.
The jeep became the primary light wheeled transport vehicle of the United States Military and its Allies in World War II, as well as the postwar period, with President Eisenhower once calling it, “one of three decisive weapons the U.S. had during WWII.” It was also the world’s first mass-produced four-wheel drive car, manufactured in six-figure numbers. About 650,000 units were built, constituting a quarter of the total U.S. non-combat motor vehicles produced during the war, and almost two-thirds of the 988,000 light vehicle class produced, together with the Dodge WC series. Large numbers of jeeps were provided to the U.S.’ allies, including Russia at the time — aside from large amounts of 11⁄2– and 21⁄2-ton trucks, some 50,000 jeeps and 25,000 3⁄4-tons were provided to Russia during WWII — more than Nazi Germany’s combined total production of their Volkswagen vehicles, the Kübelwagen and the Schwimmwagen.

This is an awesome little kit. My son and I built this together and he has been playing with it everyday since. It rolls super smooth and the details are pretty cool too, from the windshield folding down to the gas can that attaches to the back these kits are not your average brick toys. Was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package that had the tires and found them to not be plastic. My son and I could not be happier, thank you War Bricks!!

Who dislikes a Willy’s Jeep? I liked this one so much I bought a second one, which I guess this review is for the second one. I have this idea of replicating to some sense the old “Rat Patrol” series. Anyway, as a Cobi build, this is not a challenging build & takes very little time to construct. I do suggest to pay attention to the placement of things. The engine is a cinch if the pieces before hand are on the correct line. Embarrassment abounds in that I had to back up a few things when the engine’s main piece was too long for the compartment. How’d that happen?
Luckily, bricks can be corrected, although some pieces do provide a challenge to separate, which is a testimony to Cobi’s fit & finish quality. I do wish for Cobi to provide a smilier tool for such situations like the other guy has. Nonetheless, Cobi rules!
As a finished vehicle, the Jeep this portrays is simplistic & reeks in sentimental aura for those who understand the significance of the Jeep in the roles it played since it’s creation. That you can opt for the windshield to be up or down is nice. The toy factor of this thing is likely great for those allowing kids to touch their beloved Cobi’s, or as a toy for an age appropriate kiddo.
My one detail I’m looking to overcome is the serial number is the same on each one of this Set, not a compliant, but to display them together, I’d like to modify that without causing harm to the clean pad print look that exists. It’s probably no big deal to let the duplicated serial number be a non-issue, not too many people would even notice such trivial things.
To one sure, this is a neat little set that can enhance a tank or suitable aircraft collection or other displayed smaller vehicles, such as the available halftracks, Kubelwagen & Schwimmwagen or others like that. This Jeep set is sturdy with wheels that roll, a lifting hood with a sufficiently detailed engine & a fold down windshield. It is fair in price for what you get. A rather affordable add-on to any Cobi collection.
Hope this helps!

This kit looked so good we had to get two. My son’s US troops get to ride into battle now, in a Jeep that looks pretty authentic. The inclusion of a .50 and a radio are nice touches (not sure the radio is authentically big enough, but looks good).
